Hi
I am doing one project on Project Management system using j2ee technologies.
Which application server I should use while testing and while implementing in some small companies which application server best describes their needs.
I am also doing on another project called autonomous college automation. Should I use Java application server provided by Sun along with J2EE 1.4 beta release. In what way it is different from iPlanet or other app servers.
Can anybody provide me with ample information regarding this?
thanx

Does the client enforce the use of some particular appserver (as a company standard)? If not, then select the one you're most comfortable with (assuming licence costs are not an issue). If the system needs to interact/co-exist with other J2EE applications, it's often easier to use the same application server as the others (simplifies environment management).

The Sun J2EE 1.4 Beta is a reference implementation and beta. If you're comfortable with that, then fine. I would choose something else.

Check out Blazix from Desiderata. This App server does it all plus it has a very nice EJB wizard to get you going.

JBoss. small companies sometimes don't have enough money to pay for a commercial app server. Jboss is good, and you might end up using it in real time apps, not only testing environment

Does JBoss have a servlet container?

JBoss.org distributes integrations with Tomcat and Jetty.

Thank U all for your great suggestions.
John, You suggested of Blazix from Desiderata.
Is that one free like JBoss?? Where can I search to get more information on this server.
I have lot of problems in configuring JBoss server with my applications . Is there any tutorials online regarding this?
Thanx once again to all

Blazix is commercial but relatively cheap.

Unfortunately, Blazix is only an EJB 1.1 Container (according to their website) and has no market share.
